DIMAPUR — The Eastern Nagaland Public Emergency on Saturday lifted the ‘indefinite total shutdown’, which was imposed in the eastern districts of Nagaland on the eve of the polling day for the first phase of Lok Sabha election.

The announcement came a day after the polling for the state’s lone parliamentary seat ended peacefully on Friday, with zero vote recorded in six eastern districts after the Eastern Nagaland Peoples’ Organisation (ENPO) called for abstention from voting over the Frontier Nagaland Territory issue.

While expressing regret over the inconveniences caused, the Eastern Nagaland Public Emergency, in a press release, said that “it was indeed an exceptionally positive report that there have been no report of any adverse incidents from any region/area of eastern Nagaland as we strive to demonstrate our unity to the world by abstaining from voting”.

Extending gratitude to the citizens of region for their pivotal role in the success of abstention from the election process, it said that the steadfast dedication and unwavering commitment to peace and unity had significantly contributed to fostering a harmonious environment.

“We thank you for upholding our community’s values and showcasing your unwavering commitment to our collective welfare,” it stated.

The Eastern Nagaland Public Emergency went on to say that they have a long way to go to achieve their goal.

“We consistently urge all citizens of eastern Nagaland to continue extending your full cooperation until we reach our ultimate destination,” it appealed. “Above all, we give all glory and honour to Almighty God for answering our prayers. We also urge all citizens of Eastern Nagaland to continue to have faith and commit everything to God through prayers.”

It further urged all citizens to refrain from “passing any negative comments against any leader, individual or group on different social media platforms”.
